    Hello all, I am new to the forum because of a specific issue I am having.

    I recently built a new computer with an ASUS P5K Deluxe, Intel Core 2 Quad, and three WD 500GB SATA 300 drives (identical). Using the ICH9R functionality, I set up a RAID 5 array (for storage and redundancy). I did a fresh install of VISTA with all the latest drivers, and the Intel Matrix 7.6 Storage Manager. After about a week, the computer rebooted itself at random (I was away, and the computer was idle. ) I came back and the system was rebooted, saying it could not find a boot device. After restarting and entering the ICH9R config utility in the bios, it said that all the drives were good, but the array was failed, so I chose to rebuild. 36 hours later, it was fine. About 6 hours after that, I was checking my email, and a balloon notification popped up saying that my array was being rebuilt AGAIN. Totally confused, I rebooted, and then my THEME service did not start, and the array continued to rebuild itself. Nothing in the event log pertaining to this at all. Any ideas???

    Thanks in advance. I am totally stumped.
